New South Wales has recorded its first locally-acquired COVID-19 case in 14 days, after a Byron Bay resident tested positive. The man had attended the same venue that hosted a bachelorette party which has been linked to one of the Brisbane clusters. The NSW government has responded by cancelling Byron Bay’s popular Bluesfest music festival and reimposing coronavirus restrictions across four shires in the region. Bluesfest organisers had hoped to attract over 16,000 music fans on each day of the event, which had also been cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
